The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”
Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.
I am so happy to know that there are parents out there that accept their childrens gender identities and not force the one they were given at birth. When you allow a child to truly express their gender, they blossom and become beautiful little people. I recently found out that a family friend’s daughter has transitioned over the past several years. Now I’ve know the family friend since I was a child, but she moved internationally before I finished primary school. So I’ve only ever met her daughter once, before she transitioned from male to female. She was so shy and quiet. She’d only talk to her mother, and when she did she would whisper into her ear. I don’t think I even saw her smile. Well now. Now she’s a completely transformed outgoing little girl. Every photo I’ve seen of her she’s got this beautiful wide smile on her face, identical to her mothers. I got to watch a video of her dressed as Elsa, singing and dancing along to all the Frozen songs. And my goodness. It was breath-taking. She’s so happy now. There is nothing better on this world than when those you love accept you for you are, and let you live as such. No criticisms, no bad advice, just unconditional supportive love.
